Miner killed, 3 injured in Agusan del Norte landslide



A miner was killed and three others were injured after a landslide swamped a small mining community in Agusan del Norte early Wednesday, police reports said on Thursday.

The reports identified the fatality as Juvie Namoc and the injured as Vincent Jumawan, Marcelito Bernados and Joven Laurente, all residents of Barangay San Pedro, Marihatag town.

Heavy rains triggered the landslide in Sitio Tabon, Barangay Tagmamarkay, Tubay town, the reports said.

Namoc and the others were preparing a meal in their bunk when part of a hill gave way, burying the bunk in mud and rocks.

Villagers dug up the victims and brought them to the Cabadbaran City Hospital, where Namoc was declared dead on arrival.
